Since graduating from Davidson (The College That Stephen Curry Built), I have been writing about sports--just about any and all you can think of!--and coaching tennis in Atlanta, Ga. Beyond the four major sports, I am an avid tennis fan and cover the ATP Tour on a daily basis. If I'm not busy writing, you can generally find me on a tennis court or traveling the world wherever a sporting event takes me.

We have another busy day and also a busy week as a whole in the world of sports. There is a 12-game slate in Major League Baseball, which includes a double-header between the White Sox and Indians. As for the upcoming weekend, it is obviously headlined by college football and the NFL but it is also features the Ryder Cup. Let’s take a look at where the public money has gone so far on Thursday.

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies -1.5 Pittsburgh Pirates

Bettors’ favorite MLB play of the day is on the Phillies to win by multiple runs against the Pirates. Philadelphia on the -1.5 run line is inspiring 82 percent of the handle and 83 percent of the bets. On the money line, the Phillies massive -280 favorites. The public certainly isn’t scared away by that juice, though. A total of 74 percent of the money and 77 percent of the bets are supporting Philadelphia to win straight up.

MLB: Houston Astros ML over Los Angeles Angels

Bettors are also hammering the Astros in their road date with the Angels. Houston on the -170 money line is getting 66 percent of the money and 82 percent of the wagers. Punters are plenty willing to give the 1.5 runs, too. The Astros at -1.5 are bringing in 79 percent of both the handle and the bets.

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays vs Minnesota Twins Under 9.5

When it comes to game totals, the public is all over the under in this meeting between the Blue Jays and Twins. With 62 percent of the wagers supporting Under 9.5, 84 percent of the money is doing the same. There is also some interest on Toronto. The Jays on the -1.5 run line are being backed by 79 percent of the handle and 75 percent of the bets.

NFL: Las Vegas Raiders -4.5 over Miami Dolphins

We’re on to Week 3 in the NFL, and the bets are already coming in. As it stands right now, the public’s favorite play is the Raiders -4.5 at home against Miami. Derek Carr and company are drawing 84 percent of the handle and 92 percent of the wagers. On the money line, Las Vegas is a considerable -210 favorite; 88 percent of the handle and 93 percent of the bets are still going in the Raiders’ direction.

Ryder Cup: Justin Thomas to be the United States’ leading scorer

The Ryder Cup gets underway on Friday at Whistling Straits in Haven, Wisc. On paper the United States has a massive edge in talent, which is why the host nation is a -215 favorite. The discrepancy in odds (Europe is +215) has the money pretty much split right now. Thus player points prop bets may be more enticing. Thomas is a +500 favorite to lead the American side in points and despite those odds he is still inspiring more action than anyone else. A total of 33 percent of the handle and 28 percent of the wagers are going in his direction.
